Being a geographically-oriented person, I can’t really remember exactly where Hardy-Reagan Falls was. Looking it up online, I do seem to remember that it was a short hike to the falls, but my mind can’t place it in relation to other falls in the area. I do remember that Waterloo Falls is relatively nearby. (Interesting note: Google seems to call this Cleek Branch Falls.)
As for the falls themselves, I don’t really remember spending a whole of time there. The falls are not that large, only about 5′ tall (maybe a little more). What I do like about the falls is the rock cliffs around the falls. There is a very layered effect that comes from the rocks. It adds a certain dimensionality to an otherwise not-very-exciting waterfall.
- From the intersection of TN-293 and TN-136, head north on TN-136 about 5 miles.
- You will come to a bridge, parking is on the left just before the bridge.
- On the left side of the road, you’ll find a path that leads very quickly to the falls.
Accessibility: 10/10 (easy)
Length of Hike: 0.2 miles round-trip

Your directions are off. Waterloo Road does not intersect Hwy 293. From Hwy 293 and 136 intersection, head north on Hwy 136 roughly 5 miles, parking on the left just before the bridge.
